International Overdose Awareness Day Bendigo

30 August @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

International Overdose Awareness Day aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death.

It is also an opportunity to stimulate discussion about evidence-based overdose prevention and drug policy.

International Overdose Awareness Day acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have died or suffered permanent injury due to drug overdose.

International Overdose Awareness Day spreads the message about the tragedy of drug overdose death and that drug overdose is preventable.

 

We’re having a free BBQ, providing a safe space for people to mourn loved ones, naloxone information, an opportunity to unscramble the myths around drug use and connect with local service providers.

The event will be held at the Bendigo Library Gardens from 11 am – 2 pm.
